    Trump Warns: We May Close ‘the Whole Border’ with Mexico

    Trump Warns: We May Close ‘the Whole Border’ with Mexico if Things Get ‘Uncontrollable’

    During an extended conversation with the press following a Thanksgiving call with military leadership, President Trump said he might shut down the entire southern border. Trump said he recently shutdown the border between Tijuana and San Diego and is considering shutting down the entire southern border.

    Here’s an excerpt:

    REPORTER: “Mr. President, what about the idea that the military may use lethal force against these migrants?”

    TRUMP: “If they have to, they’re going to to use lethal force. I’ve given the OK. If they have to, I hope they don’t have to, but you’re dealing with a minimum of 500 serious criminals. So I’m not going to let the military be taken advantage of. I have no choice. Do I want that to happen? Absolutely not, but you’re dealing with rough people. You ask the people in Tijuana, Mexico, they opened up with wide arms, just come in, come in, let me help you, let us take care of you. And within two days, now they’re going crazy to get them out. They want them out. Because things are happening, bad things are happening in Tijuana. And again, it’s not in this country because we’ve closed it up. Actually, two days ago, we closed the border. We actually just closed it. We say nobody is coming in because it was out of control. But you take a look at Tijuana, Mexico. You see what’s happening there. It’s really a bad situation.”

    REPORTER: “What do you mean you closed the border and nobody is coming in? What do you mean by that?”

    TRUMP: “If we find that it’s uncontrollable, Josh, if we find that it’s — it gets to a level where we are going to lose control or where people are going to start getting hurt, we will close entry into the country for a period of time until we can get it under control.”

    REPORTER: “Do you mean the entire border?” [crosstalk]

    TRUMP: “The whole border. I mean the whole border. And Mexico will not be able to sell their cars into the United States where they make so many at great benefit to them — not a great benefit to us, by the way. But at least now we have a good new trade deal with Mexico and with Canada. But we will close the border. And that means that Mexico is not going to be able to sell their cars into the United States until it’s open. But we’re going to either have a border or we’re not. And when they lose control of the border on the Mexico side, we just close the border. And we have a very powerful border. We built a very strong border in a very short period of time. And the military has been fantastic, the job they have done. And by the way, Border Patrol and ICE, all of the law enforcement we have involved, and we have local law enforcement, too, they have done an incredible job. And they have wanted this for you know, I’m the first president who’s done to this extent, but they wanted this for years. And some of the presidents, I guess they didn’t care or they wanted open borders. I don’t think they wanted open borders. Because most of them, if you go back to 2006, they all approved essentially a wall, a very powerful fence, which is pretty much the same thing. But in 2006, if you look, Obama, you look at Hillary Clinton, you look at Schumer, all of the people that are standing up protesting, they think it’s good for them politically. See, I think it’s bad for them politically. I think the fact that they’re weak on the border is very, very bad for them politically. But you know, I have only been a politician for three years so maybe they know better than me.”

    CLOSE IT DOWN NOW!


    KEEP IT CLOSED UNTIL MEXICO LOADS THEM UP ON SEMI'S, TRAINS, BUSES AND TAXI'S AND SEND THEM BACK THE SAME WAY THEY GOT TO THE BORDER.

    THEY ARE ALL ILL, LOADED WITH INFECTIOUS DISEASES...WE DO NOT WANT ANY OF THEM!

    FAST TRACK THE PREGNANT ONES, WOMEN, ELDERLY AND CHILDREN BACK FIRST!

    NO MORE DUMPING THE WORLD'S PEOPLE OR THEIR PROBLEMS OVER OUR BORDER!

    That's Trump speak....

    Let's interpret that into the truth....

    a port of entry was closed for a few hours, not the entire 1954 miles of the border.

    and how many crossed in the 1900+ miles that weren't closed during the few hours the port of entry was closed?
